So your Speedo stopped working...

Mods, please Sticky this.

So let me guess...You just spent that saved up money on a super-cool new head-unit.
Finally, you have that first simple mod to begin spicing up the interior and get rid of that ugly, crappy stock head-unit that has absolutely NO functionality.

Well congrats. I'm proud of you, welcome to the wonderful world of Car-Audio.

But oh no. What's happening?
-Your Speedometer doesn't work unless the radio is powered off.
-Your Odometer isn't gaining mileage (not even the computer is logging mileage...shhh....)
-And your Gas Range computer is going up and down like your filling your tank.

So what the h*ll is happening? Is your Tib broken? How can you fix this?Is it permanent?

Now, it doesn't matter whether or not YOU installed it; a buddy installed it; or even if a professional Install shop installed it (and yes, even Best-buy doesn't catch this error). This is a common error throughout the Tiburon community but its rare that an Install-Shop will know about it.

You need to CUT the Blue Amp-Remote wire. yes, the Blue wire labeled Amp-Remote. Usually it carries a White stripe down it.
Cut it and cap it off. Simple as that.

There will be NO permanent damage, it's just a grounding issue. Once you cut it, all will be good again. Just cap it off properly and enjoy.

Yes, i promise, That will fix your problem. You can do it or you can bring it to the Audio-Shop you had install your Radio and make them do it for free. Then educate the stupid out of them.
So, what went wrong?

Now, this seems to happen in ALL Tibs 03-08. Even the SUPER-RARE 2009 models sold on Craigslist. (haha)

BUT, it only happens in Tiburon's WITHOUT the Stock Infinity Audio System.

The problem is the After-Market wiring Harness you used. Yes. The Wiring harness.
This thing:

Now it doesn't matter what brand it is : Metra, Scosche, Bestbuy or Walmart. Any and every brand seems to do it.

Well, what is wrong with the harness?

It's that Blue Amp-Remote Wire: This is the wire that comes FROM the Headunit that carries a 12v signal to an Amplifier in the Car. Either for Subs or speakers (or both). This is hooked up to the Audio system to tell the Amps that the head-unit is on. Nothing more, Nothing less. Its a basic wire.

Now, if you have the Stock Infinity system, this wire is hooked up normally. It tells the Stock Amp to turn on...And work. Simple.

But if you DO NOT have the Stock amp, this wire is still grounded to the Car. And that is where the problem is. When the Radio turns on and sends the 12v Signal through the wire...It has nothing to power. So it grounds out onto the Car. And oddly enough, it shares the SAME grounding point as the Speed Sensor and fuel gauge.
So, this results in your Speedo stopping, Odometer taking a cr*p and your fuel gauge freaking out.

Simple, huh? Makes sense now, right? Well time to go fix it!

And stop posting threads about your speedo braking...It's not broken, the Tiburon is just a fussy little b*tch.

So enjoy. Go off into the world with this new information and rock on!

Enjoy everyone!

C'mon, it's obvious he meant it's coming to a stop.

But seriously, I just used the remote turn on wire from the new HU and butt spliced it straight to the remote wire to the amp. I skipped that harness all together.

Re: So your Speedo stopped working...

Okay, I just installed a dvd player in my car, got it all installed, played it a bit... everything good until i go to drive away after completion and my dimmer lights(dash,dial illumination, prnd lights) are all out and my dimmer switch doesnt work and also my speedo isnt working and fuel reading is jumping around. Okay so I look it up on NT to find the result and it seems this is a common problem. so i cut my remote blue/white wire, turn it on and my speedo and fuel reading is accurate but still no dash lights. I have checked every fuse with a test light and they all work but no current at the dimmer switch. Is this because I am checking it without the center consol connected (temp,clock, and temp controls). or is this something with my wiring. if it makes a difference i have tried to wire the dimmer wire and illumination wire to my HU 5 times and it doesnt work with them connected or unconnected. if anyone has had experience with similar problems with lighting going out please help!!!!

Re: So your Speedo stopped working...

You dont wire the Dimmer. Leave the orange Wires Disconnected and Capped off. They are NOT used.

You blew the Fuse in the yellow Holder inside your Fuse-Box. Replace it.

Make sure Everything is re-connected. Center Console, Dash. Everything. Then it will all work.

Let me know what happens after you do ALL of that.

Re: So your Speedo stopped working...

I will be getting straight to it when i get off work tonight, thanks for the response, and im assuming the fuse box under the dash since the box under the hood mainly has relays which i do not know how to check. also i have read other threads like this one that ppl are sure the problem is that i need to connect the orange and black to the ground so ill try a couple of things. what worries me is that i checked all the fuses and they were good but i dont recall a yellow holder so ill have to look again. but thanks for the response ill get back to ya tonight when i have messed with it more. mike

Re: So your Speedo stopped working...

well tried everything and finally got it. it was the rh tail light fuse even though a test light still worked the fuse was bad and that fixed it, dash and tail lights must be on the same circuit.

Re: So your Speedo stopped working...

would this have anything to do with the temp gauge as well? Cause in my car, my gas gauge isn't working right and my temp gauge is not working right..

Re: So your Speedo stopped working...

I dont believe that would b on the same circuit, its either a grounding issue like stated above or it could be a relay or fuse most likely. from what i found out only the dash lights and rh tail light are on the same fuse.
